President to blame for bad economy

2017-04-13 06:00

THE recalling of our finance minister, prior to a meeting, was described by an ANC member as vindictive. Instead of an enlightened, democratic president at the helm, with a goal of promoting economic growth, a ruthless, tyrannical and apparently ignorant despot has wrecked South Africa.

His agenda of greed, coupled with self-aggrandisement, has destabilised the country. One wonders what damning information, like the sword of Damocles, is being wielded by the Guptas, compelling our “rogue” president to obey their every whim.

Other associates of our “First Man” are ex-presidents wanted for crimes against humanity/genocide. No doubt the president’s coffers are overflowing with excessive payment by his puppeteers. Who is next in line to grab the reigns of our government - the Chinese, Russians or even the Brazilians?

The increasing number of court cases is also draining our finance, to the detriment of needy, charitable organisations. Grants have been withdrawn from Hospices, homes for the elderly, orphanages, special needs schools and animal welfare.
